Every human being has its own special curves and angles, proportions, and colors. We are so diferent, and in the same time so similar to each other. Human differences is somehow a taboo, because of the constant media pressure of looking a certain way. Society has made us so aware of other people’s filtered perfections that we often forget to look at our own magnificence and the strength and beauty that our bodies manifest.
How many photos of you did your friends take this summer, trying to find that one Instagram worthy snap? Which one did you post? The one where you are flirting with the camera, the casual one, the Boomerang with the flamingo in the pool, or the #nofilter snap, where the sunset rays touch your body so gently?
While the temperatures are still high, it’s never too late to visit the sea and take that perfect summer photo. If you are bored with your Instagram profile and been trying to spice it up a little, the man who will most definitely inspire your next most-liked post is Slim Aarons.
There are two things to know about me : I’ve always loved black and white photography and I’m an avid admirer of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The glamour, the jazz, the fashion, the lifestyle!
It was an ordinary Tuesday afternoon when I, looking for a little adventure, found myself in front of a gallery and saw a sign near the door that read “Czech Avant-garde Photography (1920-1939) Open Now”. You can probably imagine my excitement!
The one that caught my eye and made a deep impression was the work of Jaromir Funke.
Fashion Week. A full month dedicated to clothes. On the runway and on the streets. Fashionistas from all around the world gather at four different cities and show who they are through their clothes. And there are the street style photographers to capture their identity. Whether you wear a Dolce gown, Chanel suit or Balmain dress, it doesn’t matter to them. What matters is how originally you chose your outfit and with how much confidence you wear it.
This subject was on my post-it notes for about a month now, but I have all these exams, and so little time for fashion. Today, the pioneer of street style photography passed away, so I have to pay homage to him and express my gratitude towards the greatest.
